Each of the 72 guest suites at ski-in/ski-out Beaver Creek Lodge, conveniently located at the base of the ski mountain, has a fireplace as well as a kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker, plus dishes and glassware for four. The one-bedroom suites have doors that close (privacy for adults!) and living areas with pull-out sleeper sofas, so a family of four can fit comfortably here. If you’re willing to share the bedroom with your kiddos, there are some double queen-bedded suites, as well. Still more room? Consider one of the three-bedroom condos. The lodge has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub and Rocks Modern Grill — with its great outdoor patio and fire pits — serves breakfast and dinner.

My family and I just spent a week in Beaver Creek at the Beaver Creek Lodge. We love that the location of our resort was located in the village and just a short walk to the lifts. We didn’t need a car on this vacation at all which was nice. The resort has an ultra-hip mountain style with beautiful artwork displayed throughout the resort. Our first positive impression of the resort was how Nice EVERYONE who worked at the resort was to us. It’s a very busy season and we were always met with happy people from the front desk, shops and even the general manager introduced himself which made it feel like a happy family working together. At checkin, we received champagne and cookies which was such a special and fun touch to the beginning of the trip! The rooms were spacious. There’s a living room area with a pullout sofa, small refrigerator, microwave and sink so you can stop at a local store to pick up snacks. The separate bedroom was very nice and lit did storage. The reason i didn’t give this a 5 Star was ONLY because if one thing that the resort really needs to change ASAP: the pullout sofa mattress was the most uncomfortable “mattress”. It was really nothing but metal springs and none of us could sleep on it (and I can sleep on just about anything). We purchased a blowup mattress. The resort really needs to update this problem. Other than that, we had an amazing time here and highly recommend it to anyone with families who want to be close to the slopes.
We go at least once a year to Beaver Creek and usually stay at the Lodge. Snow is incredible this year and it was a great trip. My daughter loves taking the skier bridge at the end of the day that leads right to the front of the hotel. (Ask about how to tak3 it, it’s a little hard to figure out at first) There are new cookie and soda shops on the mountain to join the Candy Cabin, really nice additions for families. Back to the Lodge though, the new remodel and Marriott Autograph status is a great upgrade. Loved the walk in shower though the shower head was kind of high up. I saw a couple WiFi complaints but it worked great in our creek side room. You can also pick up the free beaver creek network there, a nice convenience as you walk through the building. Coming back for season closing!
